This photograph is taken near the second bridge of Edogawa applied to the Edogawa drainage canal. I came down by Myōden Station of Tokyo Metro Tōzai Line, and went to the Edogawa drainage canal. The Edogawa drainage canal is artificial river dug in order to prevent a flood at Taisho Era（1912–1926). Since this neighborhood is a small bay in Tokyo Bay, sea water has entered. For the reason, the living is also a marine living fundamentally. In river bank, the reed has grown thick and it can meet new living, such as a goby, a wild bird, a shellfish, and a crab, in the tidal flat facing a riverside. In the riverside, many fishing boats were at anchor. Probably, it is a ship which goes to Tokyo Bay to fish. In addition, many thin long stakes were stood around ship. In back, I saw the blue iron bridge along which the train of Tōzai Line passes. When I strolling the surroundings for a while, I met many crabs in the tidal flat facing a surface of a river. It came out from dug in the tidal flat, and was moving about with very slow pace.

Another fine collection of photos that together give us a good idea of this place. The combination of these three motifs has a very interesting result. Perhaps the single most beautiful photo is the one showing the bird.

Three photo describe life around the seafront.
Each is an immaculate photojob collected: the Egret on its landing is a great moment spotted.
The stilts over the marina created a small forest, and good depth applied with the bridge on the BG.
The crab shaded blue tone over the wet sand.
Interesting and well done.

Impressive collection of photos and each has its own interest about a lively balance ecosystem around the waterways. It's so well protected as good source of food to those fishermen, safe haven for bird life and crustaceans, a very efficient living system that support the livelihoods of coastal communities and at the same time improve the general environment. This good info useful shots showing your good awareness of the neighbourhood, Well done. Congrats

Sorry for the delayed response. Being on vacation away from home, I have limited time in front of the computer. This is a very nice collage of scenes of different scales along Edogawa drainage canal. My favorite is the top one, with the repetition of vertical lines that the masts make.
